Claude FrancoisComme D'Habitude ... LP
Philips/Elemental (France), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Very groovy work from French singer Claude Francois – and a set that's got all the mod touches you might expect from his image on the cover! Claude gets some strong UK help here from arrangers Reg Guest and David Whitaker, who both give the tunes a nice sort of London punch – some complicated elements from time to time, including a few nice trippy touches – but a bottom groove on most numbers, thanks to some perfect use of electric bass in the rhythms! A few tunes are remakes of English numbers, sung by Claude with French lyrics – and titles include "La Martien", "Pardon", "Rien Rien Rien", "Ma Fille", "Mais Quand Le Matin", and "Ce Soir Je Vais Boire" – plus "Comme D'Habitude", which is the original version of "My Way".

Maurice JarreSoleil Rouge ... LP
Motors (France), 1971. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Maurice Jarre penned the soundtrack to one of the oddest westerns of its time – a strange samurai-western starring Charles Bronson, Ursula Andress, and Toshiro Mifune! The overall score has that rich, dramatic style that Jarre used often in his more famous work of the 60s – with a few triumphant themes, but also a number of darker, moodier tracks that have a really haunting quality, and some odd instrumentation that's distinctly un-Jarre-like! Titles include "Poursuite", "Commanches", "Red Sun", "Vers La Montagne", and "Seduction". (Soundtracks, French) LP, Vinyl record album
(Rare original – in beautiful shape!)
